Mayor Kevin Johnson is so confident that the Kings are staying put, he’s got some advice for the guys trying to buy the team and move it to Seattle: Back off.
While saying he understands why they are putting up a fight, Johnson said Tuesday that hedge fund manager Chris Hansen and Microsoft executive Steve Ballmer should “take the high road and be gracious.”
“Once the relocation committee spoke as loud and as clear as it did, I would probably take a step back and understand that I’m probably not going to get this team, so how can I put Seattle in the best possible position to get a team moving forward?” the mayor said.
